Soooo Big

I've got some exciting news to share - today is the first challenge over at the Little Darlings Challenge Blog! You can use any stamp and we're started off the challenges with a great theme... Summer!

I used the Little Darlings stamp called Soooo Big which is perfect to begin my summer with. ;D Now that the kids are out of school and the schedule it a little more relaxed it's time to get the yard in shape the garage cleaned out!

I kept this card simple but used some of my favorite things ... like the new Die-namics die Fresh Cut Grass and those laser cut embellishments from Make it Crafty! This is also one of my favorite color schemes, I just love greens and blues. Hope you like the card and come on over to play in our challenge!

Did you know? The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created by Celtic monks ca. 800 or slightly earlier. It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. It is also widely regarded as Ireland's finest national treasure.
